Man gets life sentence in Ga. girl's killingMan's guilty plea, life sentence in north Ga. girl's killing brings swift conclusion to case
CANTON, Ga. (AP) ' An apartment maintenance man in north Georgia has been sentenced to life in prison without parole after pleading guilty to molesting and killing a 7-year-old girl, bringing an unusually swift conclusion to a case that frightened the community just over a month ago.
Speaking softly in court and with little emotion, 20-year-old Ryan Brunn detailed Tuesday how he lured Jorelys Rivera (JOR'-ih-lees ruh-VEHR'-uh) into a vacant apartment, molested her, beat and stabbed her to death and stuffed her body into a trash bin.
The girl disappeared when she left the apartment complex's playground to get sodas for her friends. Brunn told the judge he used her lost roller skate to coax her into the unit in the complex where he'd worked for about a month and forced her to undress.
